Half a millennium of Western art history is illustrated through drawings, paintings, prints, and sculpture from the permanent collection of the Arkansas Arts Center. The exhibition shows how such traditions of European art continued into the nineteenth century before being overturned by modern masters like the Mexican Diego Rivera.
